Basic road brake lever clamp won't loosen

I have a vintage '87 Kuwahara Titan I just bought and I am trying to change the stem, so I have to remove a lever.

Both levers are completely stuck on, like there is a bolt I am missing.

I removed the screw through the hole in the front of the lever but it has done nothing, either the clamp is completely siezed or there is something I am missing.

These are basic non-brifter levers, and I see nothing else under the hood or anywhere else. The screw is completely out of the lever and it won't budge.

Any ideas on this?
